The Times Microwave cables are some of the best. With some friends who are Hams I get all the inside scoop about what they like or don't like. The consensus among the crowd at the local electronics/Ham store is crimp and solder these days. I began using them a few years ago and could not be happier. The center conductor gets soldered but the braid crimped.

Here's a "How To". Please ignore the Ancor RG-213 cable as I would normally never use it however it was given to me so free beats out buying the Times stuff....
